The trajectory of Taylor’s success soared at the 2005 European Amateur Championships in Tønsberg, Norway, where she clinched the gold medal in the 60 kg lightweight class, defeating Eva Wahlström of Finland. Despite a setback in the 2005 World Amateur Championships, where she reached the quarter-finals and faced her only defeat by Kang Kum-Hui, Taylor rebounded triumphantly.

In 2006, at the European Amateur Championships in Warsaw, Poland, Taylor secured her second successive gold medal by defeating reigning world champion Tatiana Chalaya and earning the tournament’s Best Boxer award. Her historic feat continued at the 2006 World Women’s Boxing Championship in New Delhi, India, where she became Ireland’s first World Champion, triumphing over Chalaya again in the semi-final and subsequently defeating Erica Farias of Argentina in the 60 kg final.

Successive victories followed in the European Championships in 2007 and the European Union Championships in 2008, where Taylor secured her first European Union gold. The pinnacle came at the 2008 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championship in Ningbo, China, where she claimed her second World title in the 60 kg weight class, marking her 100th bout with a victory over China’s Cheng Dong.

Taylor’s achievements extended to her professional debut in 2016, marked by a third-round technical knockout at Wembley Arena in London. Notable wins, including those on the undercard of the Anthony Joshua vs. Éric Molina heavyweight world title fight, solidified her standing in the professional realm. Beyond the ring, Taylor’s diverse endeavors include appearances on RTÉ’s Sport Stream in 2002, coaching on Charity Lords of the Ring in 2009, and serving as a brand ambassador for Its4women, an online insurance company, from 2016 onwards.
